The neighbor reportedly plays Pokemon Go with Harwood. The neighbor discovered the videos on her email as well as PayPal transactions. Harwood gave the neighbor access to her email as she had a poor internet connection and asked him to catch Pokemon for her. The neighbor later tipped officials at Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Paul Penzone thanked the neighbor who alerted authorities. Penzone said in a press release that horrible acts of child abuse like the one that Harwood did to her kids can be stopped with the help of the alert members in the community. He urged others to report anything suspicious to end exploitation.
